We are a growing company, currently with eight offices in key locations around the United Kingdom and offices in Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, with an ever increasing number of experts covering many disciplines. Our forensic scientists and engineers investigate a wide range of losses including fires, explosions, accidents and engineering problems. Visit our Services page for more information on the disciplines we cover.

We provide a wide range of forensic investigation services and can take an investigation from scene to court if required:

  • Full investigation and report
  • Litigation support
  • Giving evidence in court
  • Forensic preview
  • Forensic Claims validation service
  • General advice

We always aim to tailor the investigation to your needs, so if you want a brief, preliminary investigation we can do that. In addition, you are always welcome to call one of our experts for an informal, confidential chat with no commitment. We will be happy to tell you what we can do to help.

If you think you might have the need for an investigator please contact us by telephone or email and we will do our best to help you.
